Facilitator: Alyssa Sabbatino, Director of Teaching and Learning, Schodack Central School District
The revolving door of SEL initiatives is exhausting, and it can be difficult to keep up with the new terminology and programs constantly hitting your inbox. This series will be rooted in the core research and strategies necessary to meet the SEL needs of our students and ourselves, while still teaching the content we joined this profession to teach.
Participants will reflect on intersections of best practices for SEL, including trauma-informed care, lagging SEL skills, teaching students with poverty in mind, and being restorative through daily instructional delivery. Participants will also reflect on how students’ behavior and SEL presentation impacts them as individuals and how this connects to their interactions with students.
